The Sunjoy®x Mini Salsa Barberry is that ideal plant – one that is colorful, compact and that needs virtually no attention at all. Its vibrant deep purple-red leaves hold their color right through from spring until they drop in late fall, and their glossy look is always attractive. Grow it as a border around beds, along paths and driveways, and in rocky places in your garden. It is extremely dense, reaching no more than 2 feet tall, and it is so neat that trimming is an optional extra.

  • Rich purple-red foliage holds it color from spring to fall
  • Compact, neat shrub that needs no trimming
  • Tough and reliable, even in difficult hot and dry spots
  • Very cold hardy throughout zone 4
  • Perfect for colorful edgings and containers

Grow the Sunjoy® Mini Salsa Barberry in full sun for the best leaf coloring. It thrives even in zone 4, and in all warmer zones too. It loves sun, heat and poor soil, enjoying rocky ground, urban conditions and heavy clay – literally anywhere it isn’t always wet. Pests and diseases are normally never an issue, and deer leave it alone. You can trim older plants in early spring for the neatest look, if you wish to, but it’s not essential.

The sale of Japanese Barberry varieties that produce seeds is banned in Maine, New York State, and Minnesota. Other states have placed restrictions. Although we attempt to stay up to date on each states’ Department of Agriculture regulations, rules can vary, and change rapidly. This link will show you the situation in your own state and remember that barberry is not a problem in many states. Check our site for non-seeding varieties of Barberry, as many are available. These are not restricted by most states, as they cannot spread.
